Better planning, communication, and preparation has led to a lot of work being completed efficiently during the Spring Work Weeks!
During the Engineering Week volunteers achieved their goals. We have the ORCA unit in place in the Evap room, 3 cylinders had their liners removed and rings replaced, Ballast piping project was completed, Port Side Head is ready for plumbing, Engine Part Storage has been organized and parts crated for protection.
During the Deck Work Week volunteers needle gunned 2 of the forward 40 mm gun tubs. The Tank Deck Starboard Side was cleaned, scraped, and painted in preparation of the new Archives Display. Work continued in the Port Side Head to remove layers of paint and flooring.
